Thanks for sharing this. I actually didn't know that these programs existed. I think that while this exhibits a step in the right direction towards keeping women safe, it really sheds light on a bigger problem. Women shouldn't have to be segregated from men in order to be safe. Women and men should be able to coexist freely without one fearing the other. I think that the featured post today is a start to addressing these larger problems. http://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/research/it-s-a-men-s-issue-and-a-peer-group-issue
Thanks again! I'll be thinking about this more now throughout the challenge.
